Psychology of Personality. In psychology there are many definitions of personality and its structure. In general, scientists agree that personality is a combination of individual qualities, traits, attitudes and views that shape the behavior of a person. The structure of personality includes temperament, character, needs, motives, interests, goals, abilities, worldview, ambitions and level of self-esteem. Self-esteem is at the center of the structure because it determines the attitude of a person to himself or herself that determines his or her attitude to other people.
Temperament and character determine the person’s behavior and life choices, motives, needs, goals and interests. Philologists divide the components of the personality structure into internal psychological and external social. In addition, there is a social programming that plays the dominant role, because we cannot live outside of society. Psychology considers personality as an extremely complex object of research. There are many conflicting theories of personality. Each theory examines a person through the prism of a narrow element thereby complementing each other. However, there is no personality theory that could provide answers to all the questions.
